On the night of April 26th the Kijabe area received over 5″ of rain in less than 3 or so hours. This was preceded by 11″ of rain in the prior month. With the ground so saturated many areas were not able to hold the water and the result was 4 landslides in the direct area of Kijabe and many more in the surrounding vicinity. These pictures try to represent the damage done by the water but it is more devastating in person. Please pray as the community recovers from the devastation. Please pray for the shambas (gardens) that people have planted to provide food for their families.
Last Saturday we took a walk to see the devastation that was caused by the mudslides with our kids. It was truly humbling to see what had taken place.
